Issue is resolved

In the event no one responds privately, I'll provide this much now.
The IRS will be more than happy to provide you with any questions you may have without requiring you to provide any reasons for your asking. Whatever state you live in also has a department devoted to the fair enforcement of labor laws and will also provide information without asking for justification. Of course, should you choose to do so, they will be more than happy to listen to whatever you may wish to reveal.
You have nothing to hide. Your boss may want to run for the hills however.
